2 Week Meal Plan #1 Part 1

Here's the first of my two week meal plans. This one is about two weeks old. The grocery store here had really good BOGO sales on chicken, shrimp, italian sausages, bratwurst, pork chops, and chuck roasts. It just made sense to buy the stuff on sale and make my money stretch further.

Anyway - as usual, I'll add a grocery list and substitutes. Grocery list wont include the subs, so you'll have to pay attention there. Also, I keep things like milk, flour, spices and herbs in my kitchen so these things wont be on the grocery list either, you'll need to pay a bit of attention there too. Anyway, Happy Cooking!!!!


Ya know, life is funny sometimes. I've been writing one single blog post for weeks now. I just can't ever manage to find the time to complete the meal plan and grocery list. Part of the problem is that my original grocery list and meal plans were ruined and have since been lost, and part of the problem is that there is just never enough time in the day to do all the things I want to do. And we're not just talking blog posts here. There's so much sewing I want to do... So much crafting I want to do (I found a pin on pinterest with instructions on how to modge podge comics to heels.... I MUST try this.)... Never enough time.

I'll find a few minutes here, a few minutes there, but then as soon as I remember I want to finish the post, I remember there's a more pressing task to complete (OH!! I gotta feed these kids!! Guess I should cook dinner now!.... OH! Maybe I should do these dishes....) and then that few minutes of free time just... evaporates.

I guess this is my apology for not having finished the post yet. Soon, very soon. I promise. AND I'll even  add another two week meal plan to it. So, a total of 4 weeks worth of meal plans and grocery lists too.

Any way, in the mean time, I hope you'll accept this link to Stephanie O'Dea's blog, A Year of Slow Cooking.  I LOVE her blog. Her recipes are all pretty awesome and super simple to follow. She literally used her crock pot every day, for a whole year.
